Smack dab in between the Casino and Aztec theaters on 5th Avenue was this disreputable little cave that screened mostly silent porn loops, in a foul-smelling space reeking of disinfectant. I used work at the Aztec and Casino, and I recall catching whiffs from inside the Foxy while standing on a sidewalk ladder to put up new marquee letters…the Foxy door would open, and I’d about swoon and fall over from the malodorous assault. Open since at least 1977, it finally closed around 1987.

When I worked at the Aztec in the late 60s, this space was used as a card room. Mostly older men playing poker. It was never a traditional theatre. As I recall, the space was fairly small, so I doubt that there were more than 100 seats or so. Maybe someone out there knows for sure.
